ADHD and Traumatic Brain Injury

Narcolepsy and ADHD traumatic brain injury

3 years ago I was hit on my motor scooter riding in downtown Chicago.  I flew off.  My body hit ground first then head w/ helmet.  According to a witness.  My head hit so hard and bounced off the payment foot or more.  She said I was dead.  Seeing I was alive someone sat me on the curb.  Asked if a needed an ambulance.  I didn’t answer couldnt process. I sat there for 15 minutes just staring at the ground.  ambulance took me to hospital did 1/2 day or more of testing bills approx $25,000. 

Developed narcolerpsy / adhd.  Not too long thereafter.I’ve read that both of these can develop from head injury. 

I’d appreciate any information you may have.  Thank you Bri
